2009 Lenten Devotional and Prayer Guide

March 27

Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”            (1 John 3:3)

 

Biblical hope is not “wishful thinking.”  It is confident expectation, sort of like waiting for Christmas.  It is in light of our future expectations that we behave.  If we expect the worst, we tend to act the part, sometimes causing the worst we feared.  If we expect something glorious, then we look forward with excitement and diligent expectation.  So here it is: Jesus will return (see v 2).  Is there anything that you are doing (or not doing) that might be found embarrassing when Jesus returns?  It’s time to clean house today.
